On the other end of the spectrum were guys like Jim Brown, who charged $300....yes $300.

    Well, it's been 2 years since I was there (it's a horror con in the Philadelphia area), but I doubt the prices are up that much. The most "outrageous" thing to me was that Roddy Piper charged extra for a photo with him. No one else at the these cons (including Robert "Freddy" Englund, George Romero, or Malcolm McDowell) did that. He seemed nice himself, though.
    Yeah, iirc $30 is the most I've ever spent on a single autograph and I probably have more than 50. The cheapest (besides a couple guys who said "no charge" for just signing my DVD covers) was $10 (all within the last 6 years or so). The average was probably $20 (including guys like Tony "Candyman" Todd and Doug "Pinhead" Bradley).
    If I were at a con where $50 was the cheap autograph, I'd get very picky suddenly (only my favorite movies).
    Maybe horror cons are cheaper. G-Fest is even better. There, you buy a $5 ticket to get all of the guests (usually 3 or 4) to sign up to 3 items each. That's because (obviously) it's an arrangement between the con and the guest stars (I was at a Trek con that did a similar thing).
    .........Im guess U guys havent been to a con where Nimoy, West or Shatner were in attendence, cuz *none* of their autographs come in under -$50 (West might be the cheapest of the 3 tho.)

    We must, as loyal Tumblrs, spread it to the far reaches of the universe. It is a brother/sisterhood.

    That's right, Rafiki is really the puppetmaster driving the entire plot of the movie...

    Ditto to you. I deleted that post sometime before I saw your reply (it didn't seem as funny as I first thought).
